Five Movies I Could Watch for the Rest of My Life

Thanks to Amanda from Notes from a Newlywed for this fun idea. What are your favorite movies? What are five movies that, if need be on a lifelong rotation, would be in the movie theater of your life?

Do your movies reflect your childhood? Your interests? Movies that touched your heart and soul? Movies that made you laugh? What made the cut? 

Here's mine, in no particular order. 

1. Jaws
Whether it's one-liners that make me laugh or the edge-of-my-seat intensity of Quint's (true) story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, Jaws is a must-see. 


2. Life is Beautiful
I love, love, love this movie. It makes me laugh and cry. If you haven't seen this film, add it to your queue...and watch it in Italian with the subtitles. It really is a beautiful film and one you will never forget. 


3. The Way We Were
Ka-ka-ka-Katie! You can't help but get pulled into this classic love story of opposites who attract, Katie and Hubbell. Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford at their finest. 



4. Sex and the City
Like any Sex and the City fan, I waited patiently for my ladies to make it to the big screen...and they did not disappoint...at least in the first movie. 



5. Before Sunset
This one is the second installment of the Ethan Hawke/Julie Delpy trilogy about a Jesse and Celine, strangers who met on a train to Vienna in the first film, nine years earlier. What I like most about this is the fact that it's a film of conversation. It's smart. It's real. It's honest. And it's set in Paris...it feeds the wanderlust.


So those are mine. What are your favorites?

    1. Jaws is classic...fear of the unknown...you're terrified before you even see the shark. Love it! Thanks for stopping by, Amy!

  2. Dirty Dancing would of course make the list. I think The Breakfast Club and 16 Candles too. Bridget Jone's Diary and Legally Blonde...it's hard to stop at five.

    1. Dirty Dancing! Love it! My Nana used to LOVE that...truth be told, I think she had a crush on Patrick Swayze...who could blame her? You're right...there really could be ten...or more. :-)

  4. Before Sunset is a good one. So hard to choose just five though Elf, P.S I love you, the family stone, without limits and In God's hands immediately popped into my head.

    1. I loved Elf too. The Family Stone was dark, but good. I haven't seen the others. I need a good rainy weekend. :-)

  5. I agree with the films you mentioned, except for Before Sunset which I haven't seen. But I saw the sequel, Before Midnight and loved it. It's also a great conversation movie and this one is set in Greece, one of my favorite places on earth. Also, I'd add, "Love, Actually." Great Christmas movie and I could watch it over and over!
